Looking at the Democratic Convention speakers, it’s safe to say that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had one of the prime time slots this year. She used that time by seconding the nomination of Bernie Sanders.
“In a time when millions of people in the US are looking for deep, systemic solutions to our crises…and out of a love for all people, I hereby second the nomination of Senator Bernard Sanders of Vermont for President of the United States of America,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
She talked about establishing 21st century social, economic, and human rights, by including guaranteed health care, higher education, living wages, and labor rights, for all people in the United States. The systems that Democrats want in place are instilled by the blanket mantra of ‘fear” across American communities.
Mainstream media platforms have been using racial injustice, colonization, and misogyny, to try and push their political agendas of destroying capitalism and the U.S Constitution entirely. Radical left activists, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, have described this progressive movement as a “mass people’s movement” that is working towards aligning the country with socialist ideologies.
While Joe Biden was assured to win the nomination vote, Sanders did earn delegates during the primary. Working closely with Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez has worked on policies such as the Green New Deal, Medicare-for-all and comprehensive immigration reform.
She called American history one that has “unsustainable brutality that rewards explosive inequalities of wealth.” That’s a pretty big claim for a U.S legislator earning a six-figure salary.
The speech was abundantly clear in its message. It served as a threat not only to Republicans, but to a potential President Biden that the far-left is a force he will have to reckon with should he win in November. Ocasio-Cortez ddi not even mention Biden once before embracing her own policies and liberal foothold in Congress. The agenda of the far-left looks like any leader’s worst nightmare at this point.
Though Ocasio-Cortez’s nomination of Bernie has prompted widespread confusion on social media, she claims that the notion was “purely symbolic.” While she claims to extend the deepest congratulations to Joe Biden, her speech made it clear that lawmakers will need to push for a far more progressive Democratic platform.
It’s a mess the left can’t get out of at this point, so why try?
